Re: Anyone want to Compare LDs?

I don't mean to single Chatta out for particular anti-anime sentiment. We did get some stinkeye on a few occasions while dropping off AWA flyers, but that was about it. Of course, Chattacon's anime screening room was, at least in the late 1980s, run by a guy who insisted that the name of the series...

Re: Anyone want to Compare LDs?

AWA seems to have a decent amount of programming aimed at the older segment of fandom. A lot of the staff that started the show in 1995 are still involved. It's still full of teens and young adults posing in costumes, but there are some parents and grandparents in the mix as well. That is good to k...

Re: Anyone want to Compare LDs?

Hi Moonsaber. Though not affiliated with the TechnoGirls, a download of their fansub was indeed my introduction to Oniisama e (an nth gen VHS rip with lots of noise). I posted awhile back about how the TechnoGirls apparently finished their fansub in fairly recent times, even after both an official ...

Re: Anyone want to Compare LDs?

Oh wow, I live in Pelham right next door to Alabaster, and lived in Alabaster for like 8 years prior to moving. Don't think I know him, though. Maybe I need to meet him. Yeah, sad that SF cons have dropped so low. I used to be a Sci Fi con guy, having been into that world since I was a kid. Met a lo...

Re: Anyone want to Compare LDs?

Dave Merrill, Nope, I was not in Birmingham yet at the time. I did go to Deep South Con a few times when it was hosted in Chattanooga, though? I belonged to an anime club that met in East Ridge TN for some time, though. I have heard good things about the Rocket City cons myself, but also have not be...

Re: Anyone want to Compare LDs?

https://www.oldschoolotaku.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=14817#p14817 Pic didn't load for whatever reason. AWA, huh? I have always meant to go to that, and never have. When I lived in Chattanooga I used to go to their cons, I live in the Birmingham area now, and rarely attend our local cons. Last one I...

Re: Anyone want to Compare LDs?

This is from memory - I have many more in several milk crates and record boxes to be added. The Maison Ikkoku LD24, Dirty Pair box, 2 of 3 GE999 TV boxes, and Ghibli Ga Ippai boxes are a few highlights. Gatchaman complete TV series box is huge, with great original art on each sleeve. Also have the ...

Re: Anyone want to Compare LDs?

I have one disc with playback issues, I have two copies of Moldiver 1 because my first went bad. No obvious issues on them.

Laser rot, huh? I haven't actually seen a disc with visible rot, I know it happens on some of the cheaper platters and causes them to come apart.

Re: Alita: Battle Angel release..

There seemed to be a mad rush for critics to poo on it.

Topped the box office, no problem, this weekend. 4 Day weekend gross in the USA of a bit over 34 Million. It's expected to be a real smash overseas.

I saw it Thursday night in normal vision, and Saturday in 3D. So far.
